Winter Speaker Series: A New American Globe: James Wilson of Vermont with Amanda Kay Gustin

In 1810, James Wilson, a farmer from Bradford, made something extraordinary: the first American-made globes for sale in history. With little formal schooling and no real scientific background, he had made an object of astonishing detail and incredible beauty. His globes made their way into classrooms and homes across America for the next fifty years, a less expensive alternative to imported English globes and an education phenomenon.
